Collect things you no longer use and clothes you've outgrown. Give them to charity.
Throw Out Harmful Products
Under the supervision of an adult, investigate how to safely use, store, and dispose of cleaning products, fertilizer, oil, and other harmful substances. What types of products are safe for the environment?
Research ways to save water, such as watering the lawn early in the morning or late in the day, using drip irrigation, and using a bucket instead of a hose to wash the car.
During the holidays, recycle wrapping paper and ribbons. You can also wrap presents in the comics section of the newspaper.
Instead of throwing away items such as margarine tubs, jelly jars, or milk cartons, think of other uses for them, like pots for house plants.
Encourage your family to shop locally. Always bring reusable shopping bags to stores.
Borrow Before Buying
Borrow books and movies from a local library instead of buying new copies.
Use Rechargeable Batteries
Recycle them when they can no longer be recharged.
